Joe Garza explores the benefits of the “Texas Miracle” – the way in which Texas businesses have created jobs and attracted migrants from all over the United States. From 2001 to 2011, when job creation across the country was faltering or even at a net negative, Texas saw an increase of over 730,000 private sector jobs. Various tax breaks and subsidies have attracted a plethora of business to relocate to Texas, as businesses both large and small have much to gain from Texas’ policies. For instance, a new law concerning a reformed margins tax that was initiated by the Texas Tax Reform Commission has granted over 40,000 small businesses exemption from the franchise tax. Texas’ business-friendly policies, low government spending, and favorable business regulations have proven to be some of the main contributors to the state’s consistently high quality of life for all its residents.
